The City of Sterling Heights will break ground on its new Community Center on Tuesday, July 3, the largest project associated with the Recreating Recreation millage passed by voters in 2016.
The Community Center is estimated to be 98,000 square feet and will be located on Dodge Park Road across from the existing Library, Police Station and City Campus. The Community Center will house two (2) gymnasiums, five (5) dance and fitness rooms and be home to a majority of Parks & Recreation programming. The project scope is estimated at $22 million.
“This is one of the largest and most significant City buildings to be constructed in our 50-year history,” said Mayor Michael C. Taylor. “This building will be used by tens of thousands of people every year and undoubtedly be a much-loved addition to Sterling Heights. We are greatly looking forward to its construction.”
Community Center construction begins this summer and is expected to open to the public in December 2019.
